Welcome to For the Health of It – a healthy, holistic space where like-minded individuals gather to share and learn together about healthy lifestyle. If you are here, you already know there is a strong connection between lifestyle habits and the way you feel, look, and interact with others and the world.  Our daily habits impact our mental, physical, spiritual, and relational connections with the world and can either propel us into health and wellness or inhibit us from experiencing all that we can be.

We begin with nutrition and digestion by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. This is not an exclusive, rigid diet; rather it is a process through which we learn what works best for our bodies. Next, we look at the whole person and work to evolve personal habits like stress-management and deep sleep, healthy weight, and functional movement to attain the best version of ourselves possible.

I am a certified health coach who specializes in holistic, functional health regardless of age or ability. Everyone has the right to be healthy and balanced. You deserve to feel good inside and out.

Spring and Autumn Detox 4-Week Workshops 

You can join me twice a year for a 4-week detox that will set your mind, body, and spirit right as you move from Spring to Summer in the Spring Detox, and then again as you move from Autumn to Winter in the Autumn Detox. Take radical self-responsibility for your own body, mind, and spirit – become your own healer.

Did you know our habits are communal? You adopt the habits of the people you spend the most time with so choose to spend time with like-minded people who have a goal to cleanse, release, clear, and start fresh. Take charge of your own evolution ~ lose the gunk in the system, lose weight, allergies, and cravings as you adopt smarter habits and find clarity during these 4-week Detox workshops. Workshops available both on-line and in-person.  $79 per Detox.

Welcome to For the Health of It…. with Alison

I’m Alison and I am a seeker of all-things health and wellness.  I believe that my dharma, my purpose in life, is to help others be the best they can be through lifestyle (re)design that includes learning, practicing, and implementing healthy self-care practices.  The formula and principles are simple; the practice takes discipline; and the implementation and experience of a healthier life is just ahead. I’m not going to lie ~ I want to change the world by reaching as many people as I can and lead them into health by (re)aligning their lifestyle choices. Life can be SO much better when you make small adjustments to your daily habits including what you eat, how and when you move your body, and reducing your stress level.

I am an experiment of N=1, so much of what I have to offer you is what I have  learned through my own experiences. I am yoga teacher and am certified through eCornell in Plant-Based Whole-Food Nutrition and have an MA from Michigan State University with a concentration in gender, justice, and environmental change. I believe that to be truly healthy, you need to take radical self-responsibility and be your own healer in every sense, which means stepping into your own power and aligning with nature and all its abundance.  I am Alison ~ a woman full of messy imperfections but with a determination to help other women and men lead healthier lives.

When I was 39, my mother died of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Her death left me empty, sad, confused, and DETERMINED.  As healthy as she seemed, something went terribly wrong.  What exactly, I’ll never know, but what I do know is that the dominant culture has taught us all the wrong things about how to care for ourselves and how to eat. We work like crazed lunatics, stay up late, eat the wrong food, and ignore our bodies, which has serious impacts on our health and ultimately our lives.

What’s your story? Are you looking for better health and a healthier lifestyle? What the heck is holding you back?
